Install Fails for S&T 2011 - Fix RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using Win 7 x64 Home Premium SP1 with up to date patches, Office 2010 32bit.

    I tried to reinstall S&T 2011 after several months of non-use and ran into a failed install with the notification a component was missing and the install could not continue. This error occurred after the install tried to install the C++ 2010 Distributable.

    I had previously loaded the C++ 2010 Distributable (x86 & x64) SP1 and deduced there was an error with the S&T install trying to load a previous version of the C++ 2010 Distributable. I uninstalled both the x86 and x64 SP1 versions and then let the S&T install add these distributables. Success.

    I then went ahead and reload the SP1 distributables and everything is running fine.
